Yuck, Aggie!

Can you stand another post about horses? I promise this one is good for a laugh.

I’ve posted several times in the past about Aggie, the horse that we stop to visit on our trips to and from the Outer Banks.

Earlier this week, we made a quick trip to the OBX and stopped by her pasture. As I was walking the short distance from our truck to her fence, I noticed her head was down and thought she was drinking water.

She was actually eating. I’m not sure what it was (not knowing anything about what you feed horses), but it had the consistency of soupy oatmeal.  As I walked toward her, treats in hand, she lifted her head, and I saw her lunch dripping from her mouth.

Motor Man captured my reaction.

And a close-up. (Of her, not me.)

Oh, okay, if you insist.

I put a few treats in her dish and we were on our way. Sorry, Aggie, no eating from my hand on this trip.
